    It is fascinating reading about your interactions with nature and enhanced brilliantly by the photos. What it does highlight for me is that I too have had, on a much lesser scale, small interactions with nature which were very real but which I really didn’t understand and whereas you, being so close to it, if not right inside it, are able to extrapolate and investigate further, I got diverted by the other ‘stuff’ which fills our world today. I see your journey as being one that maybe all peoples were able to travel and explore in times gone by when people were nomads or maybe living simply, closer to the earth and nature. The words you write echo, resonate with something inside of me, a memory, or dream, maybe but I also think you and the journey you are on, with it seems, many others taking this path nowadays, is a response to her calling us. We are the (supposedly) most intelligent of species, the dominant on this planet and are all horrified by the damage we are inflicting on nature and other species. The guilt and remorse, along with discovering ways of changing it are the topic of the day. Attenborough has a new series which started last night with Antarctica. Watch it if you can! It is riveting, as always, but this time, like none before, shows hope! How nature is responding to the damage we are doing. Maybe she is also calling more loudly to those who would listen, like you. Your words give me hope that we have not entirely lost all contact with the mother of this place we live in, our mother. It is really important that we have the chance to to read of the journeys of someone who has broken away from the chains that would keep us from her. I can’t wait for the next chapter.
    p.s. Having only started on my veggie journey in July, I too find certain foods cause me to feel unwell, full in my stomach and dull headed!!

      Thank you for taking time to read the words and reply. It means a lot, and yes it is so heartening that more people are realising that they don’t need to be educated on how to be outside in nature, they just need to go, to sit, to think, to dream, and one by one I feel this is happening. xxx
